I think the intake would be fine in the cab its not like jeeps air air tight where itl cause pressure changes. Plus its not turbo'd

I have seen it done before, but I would have to re do the harness and a couple other hoses, which I guess isnt the worst thing. But I also I might make two different setups. One like the one I decribed and one that just replaces the long run at the end with a smaller piece that places the fliter right after the shock hoop. Well see, but I would rather just leave the In-Cab one on all the time

I made a little more progress on my intake. Here is the cover I made to close up the huge hole from (i think) the heater fan.

I finished the intake and updated some the of pics above and here is some more.





Here is the steering shaft support I fab'ed up.



Swapped out my old headlights for some Deltas 1149-50X. They fit like a glove.

Need help choosing axle shafts

I need some opinions.

I pretty sure I am going to go with a Yukon Grizzly locker but im having trouble deciding on axles. Im over budget just like 99% of builds, haha, so keep that in mind. I have inner long chromoly 35spl and a stock 35spl shorty that came with the axle.

1. Use inners I have, new std U-joints, Chromo 35 spl outers, worry about breaking this stock shorty, ($450 ish)

2. Sell what I have get complete new chromo set with warranty with std joints, prob would last me a while, ($850ish)

3. Sell what I have get chromo with super joints, not sure if super joints are worth it, ($1200ish)

4. RCV Shafts, "straight baller", ($2200)

5. Get option 1 for now save for RCV shafts and then ill have Option 1 as a spare. ($450 then $2200 later)

ALSO anyone recommend and D60 outer axle seals?

Thanks for you input.

Option 1.5....ad a short side chromo to the shopping cart. They cost no more to buy one at a time than in a set. A short side Yukon is like $85. I only know this because I also have a stock short side and shopped to replace it.

Most guys I know of run Spicers and never seen one break...but, I'm a newb and I know they can break. Point is it is not that often unless you really pound them. Yukons are nice for strength, but there is constant lubing if you want them to last. If it was a D44 I'd get the yukons, but in a 60 the spicer stuff is pretty strong.

Lookin awful purdy B-won...and pimpin some fab skills to boot!

As for the u-joints, most of our group has gone back from the indestructible to the readily available. Spicer all the way, and always have an extra. I can't remember the last u-joint failure we've had, not in the 1 tons at least.

Specs on the shop? 28x40? Big time jealous of that part man, I need room!

Lemme know when you're ready to haul that up this way!

Ohhh, and that filter is gonna be loud! I guess it's more of the annoying pitch that will drive you nuts. I wouldn't worry about it till you drive it a little bit, but maybe plan for a box to block the sound.

I've been busy with work and Tarpon fishing lately so I havent posted updates in awhile but I have been still working on her.

For those who dont know what a tarpon is, here a pic of a good size one that I caught recently. They migrate to my area once a year for about 3 months.



Im going to run a Winters shifter for my TH350 , Universal mount, fabricated into the factory center console. Here it is so far...





I had to make a new hole for the cable mount so it would be at the correct angle.



Heres the Altas all mounted up

Dash Update

After contemplating how I wanting to coat my dash, powercoat, bondo and spray,...... I decided to Line-X it. Seemed like a good idea since I didn't have to bondo or touch up any of the seams, and its very tuff. I also has my modified center console sprayed as well. He she is.

That turned out very well. Was there any special prep needed to get the Line-X to stick to the plastic console?
